SIMPSON BAY–Four days of world-class racing and four nights of top-notch entertainment during the 39th St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is now the agenda for February 28 – March 3, 2019, Regatta organizers announced on Tuesday.

They decided to add an extra day to this world-renowned event, responding to its competitors requests to enjoy more racing during the busy event.

The famous and largest annual warm water regatta continues to innovate and improve responding to feedback from competitors, stakeholders and visitors.

“The 38th edition saw a number of big changes, mainly due to circumstances after Hurricane Irma, but it also presented us with a number of fabulous opportunities: the Regatta Village, hosting all concerts in one location and adding a fundraising aspect contributed greatly to the success of this year’s event.

“And this was only the beginning! We have our 40th anniversary coming up in 2020, and we are planning to present many innovative ideas during the 39th edition. The first change being four days of serious racing in the St Maarten Heineken Regatta, making every day count towards the overall result, and we are looking forward to having competitors and visitors return to St Maarten to share in the excitement,” said General Manager of St. Maarten Yacht Club Michele Korteweg.

The usual pre-event on Thursday has been changed to an official first day of racing in the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, allowing Race Management to offer a variety of courses during the four days of the event, accommodating some of world’s most seasoned sailors sailing Maxis, Monohullsand Performance Multhulls to holiday-makers on chartered Bareboats and live-aboard families cruising the Caribbean.
